Pepper Lunch is a Japanese restaurant chain. Founded in Japan in 1994. Currently over 200 locations around Asia, including 1 in Korea, 16 in the Philippines. Most of the dishes are simple rice/noodle + meat combinations. With the slogan “SIZZLE IT YOUR WAY!,” everything is served on a “patented” sizzling plate that cooks the food to a crisp and keeps it hot throughout the meal.
The food was decent. I ordered the Chicken Pepper Rice, which, once mixed with the corn and scallion, ended up tasting like fried rice. And I’m partial to heavy-on-the-pepper. I wouldn’t mind trying other items, maybe for lunch.
